By what belief do you accept something as reality or truth? People rely more and more on uncertain information. Information easily crosses the gap of distance and of time; the wide range of information available via multiple channels -from celebrity gossip to youth trends, from scientific reports to political matters- appears simultaneously and mingled together.

To expose how analysis and judgment function (or not) in a process of belief construction, the work introduces the notorious ‘Red Egg Theory’, ‘Red Egg-ism’, ‘Red Egg Mythology’, ‘Red Egg Syndrome’, and ‘The Cult of the Red Egg’. The red egg is a symbol of agitating people’s recognition and desire, causing errors that rewrite the mindset. It attempts to show metaphorically how information is being made real.
